EASTON, Md.- Easton police have arrested a man for the armed robbery of the GNC nutrition store and the attempted holdup of the High's convenience store.
Police said 46-year-old Todd Neil Holtzman's arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday when officers were called to the GNC store to investigate a holdup that just happened. They were told by employees a white male entered the store and demanded money while holding a handgun to his side. The store clerk complied and the suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured during this robbery.
Investigators said they had already begun developing Holtzman as a suspect, from an earlier attempted armed robbery that occurred at the High's convenience store on Jan. 12. Investigators said they were soon able to determine that he committed both crimes.
Approximately three into this investigation, officers were able to locate Holtzman at a local hotel. There, he was taken into custody. Also at that time, officers said they located a pellet gun that resembles a semi-automatic handgun.
For the High's attempted armed robbery, Holtzman was charged with attempted armed robbery, attempted robbery, attempted theft and false imprisonment. He was ordered held on $200,000 bond.
For the GNC robbery, he was charged with armed robbery, robbery, reckless endangerment, dangerous weapon-conceal and theft under $1,000. In that incident he was ordered held without bond.
Holtzman was later released to the custody of the Talbot County Detention Center.
